Youngs Teflon – Call Of Duty 3
Youngs Teflon came up through grime but over his career, he has found his lane and gained recognition as one of the UK’s best rappers and lyricists. Now, 10 years after the first, he has released the third instalment in the “Call Of Duty” mixtape series.
The tape is peppered with elite level wordplay and lyricism from Teflon, who created controversy when he put himself in the top 5 lyricists on the Link Up TV show “Point of View”. But this tape demonstrates exactly why he has that self belief, as the only weak verse on the project is when he tries his hand at autotune on “Alley”, which just doesn’t work.
With a strong single run before this release, the expectations were high for this project. Teflon has absolutely delivered on all these expectations. He taps into drill on this project, which he absolutely bodies as we would expect, along with the rap tracks that he is known for.
The feature selection is brilliant also. Rv is solid as always on “Bally Bop” and K-Trap gives a fire verse on “Alpo”, which was released in August with “Double Dose” featuring a hard Tiny Boost verse. But the standout feature is definitely Dave on “Rule of Two”. The two both drop powerful conscious verses and have a brilliant back-to-back section as well. The two are inseparable in quality, which is a great look to new fans who may know Dave but not Youngs Teflon.
Overall, this is a very hard tape from one of the UK’s best lyricists who adds yet another top tier project to his ridiculously large discography.
